Self-raising flour


Cocoa powder


Bicarbonate of soda


Caster sugar


Light soft brown sugar




Corn or sunflower oil




Vanilla extract


Dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids)


You will also need…

20x28cm (8x11in) cake tin, lined with baking parchment

Step 1 of 7

Preheat the oven to 180°C, (160°C for fan ovens), Gas Mark 4.

Step 2 of 7

Sift the flour, cocoa and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl and stir in the sugar, mix well.

Step 3 of 7

In a jug measure the oil and milk, then add the eggs, one teaspoon of vanilla and mix together with a fork until combined. Beat two tablespoons of the caramel in a separate cup or bowl until smooth and whisk into the egg and oil mixture.


Step 4 of 7

Combine the wet with the dry ingredients and mix well. The cake mix will be quite wet. Pour the mixture into the tin and bake in the centre of the oven for 20-25 minutes until springy to the touch.

Step 5 of 7

Cool the cake in the tin and then turn out onto a wire rack. Remove the baking paper and cool completely.

Step 6 of 7

Melt the chocolate in short bursts in the microwave, stirring until smooth. Add the remaining caramel and vanilla to the chocolate and beat well until smooth and glossy. 

Step 7 of 7

Place the cake onto a plate, spread with the frosting - you can leave to just the top or cover the top and sides completely. Leave to set and cut into slices.
